Glass Production Facilities

National Glass Centre has world class glass and ceramic production facilities available to hire, for experienced artists.

Our Hot Glass Studio is a diverse resource for glass artists, non-glass artists and designers.  Our team has many years of experience and is on hand to offer their making skills or to assist on production runs or special projects. We can also offer artistic support as well as provide information and share contacts in an effort to make your visit as productive as possible.

Our Hot Glass Studio comprises of three main areas:

Our Demonstration Studio offers a unique opportunity for large or small team production as well as special demonstrations to a visiting public or a target audience. Artists have found this a useful marketing tool for their own practice.

Our Combined Workspace is a flexible workspace with facilities for kiln forming and is ideal for group projects, outreach or workshops.

Our Education Workshop is a second workspace which is generally hired out for jewellery and stained glass making workshops. 

To complement all our studios we have a Cold Workshop area with all basic cold working facilities for finishing or embellishing glass.

For further information email Chris Blade.
